Mortimer, detto Morty, non ha le idee chiarissime su quel che vuol fare da grande. Almeno fin quando non diventa l'apprendista di un insolito maestro: la Morte, proprio quella con la falce, in persona. Una volta appurato, con notevole sollievo, di non dover essere necessariamente morto per poter svolgere il lavoro, Morty si appassiona alla nuova «materia», anche se ben presto scoprirà che essere apprendista della Morte non è poi così romantico e affascinante come sembrava... Pericoli e sfide terribili lo attendono, forse troppo grandi anche per lui, il predestinato.

Literarily speaking, Sir Terry Pratchett is one of my best friends. It’s as though I met Terry Pratchett at a party and we hit it off immediately. You like Monty Python, I LOVE Monty Python! Seinfeld, WHAT???, I’ve seen them all “Art Vandelay, nice to meet you.” No way! What about The Big Lebowski? “ Leggi tutto
It might be even harder to learn from DEATH than by death, but not that final. What a setting, hard to say something without spoilering it, but the perfect orchestration and personalities of the 3 main protagonists make the humor and dynamic possible and I would like to know how long it took Pratchet Leggi tutto
Being one of the first and the latest of all the Pratchett reads, I'm really surprised just how much I loved this one. I'm upping the star count to a full five just because I think I liked Mort, the character, even better this time around. DEATH on DISCWORLD. :) Seriously, there's nothing quite like Leggi tutto
This book was so good that if I knew the way to Sheepridge, I’d be heading there next Hogswatch Eve hoping to be chosen as DEATH’s next apprentice 😳 So how does one critique a Terry Pratchett (Sir) book to someone who has never read one, or in these reviews should we just be brief, succinct and to th Leggi tutto
This isn't an easy review to write. This has been my first encounter with the Discworld universe and the many writings of Terry Pratchett, and voicing my opinion on it makes me feel like a blundering fool stumbling into a world that was meant for his younger and perhaps wiser self, a world of which
Introducing: DEATH Aw, ain't that smile warming your heart? Or is that the adrenaline rush because you, too, just want to get away from him? Severely misunderstood guy, that fellow. He's a beekeeper, a gardener, cat-lover, admittedly not very good with colours but his shades of black are very original Leggi tutto
The ending surprised me and it was the one that I really wanted to happen. What can I say about Discworld that has never been said before. Nothing, but I need to tell you to read Mort. Mort is a cataclysmic story of epic proportions. I thought Death(the Discworld character) was going to bite dust, yo Leggi tutto
Mi primera incursión propiamente dicha al Mundodisco. Aunque admito que no me ha acabado de enganchar, he encontrado aquí cosas muy chulas, y me he reído a carcajadas en más de una ocasión. De momento tengo la voluntad de continuar. Seguiré con Guardias Guardias.
"There is no justice. There is only me." Well this was flipping great! My first step into Terry Pratchett's Discworld (I know right?!) This one tells the story of a young man called Mort who becomes Death's apprentice, along with all of the tasks and responsibilities that come with it. This world is s Leggi tutto
Bez iznenadjenja: čitati Pračeta po prvi put je nalik na upoznavanje starog, dragog prijatelja. Prijateljstvo je već tu, veliko je i puno obećava, samo eto, igrom slučaja nijedan ni drugi niste o tome bili obavešteni. p.s. izdanje koje imam je toliko divno da je teško gledati ga bez lekova za smirenj Leggi tutto
